The Fact Feed is a Lovian online news feed that limits its activities to "listing news facts, and facts alone." They require each fact to be verifiable by including the source. The Fact Feed was founded by Sawyer Hillbilly on January 13, 2011 to meet the requirements of journalism ethics and standards, and to serve as a reliable source for other Lovian and international media in its own right. The editors encourage other newspapers to cite The Fact Feed or to use its feed entries to write full articles.

The founding of the newspaper met with a great deal of support from the Lovian community. Arthur Jefferson in particular commented that he approved of 'the idea of a "fact feed" as the exclusive terrain of reason and truth, without trespassing opinions.' The King, as well as citizens such as Martha Van Ghent and Percival E. Galahad complimented and encouraged Hillbilly. Semyon Breyev, however, was rather critical, stating, 'Just because this project is made up of short sentences rather than whole articles and is called 'The Fact Feed' doesn't make it less biased than other papers in this country. This is most certainly a left-wing publication, and in fact, the lack of detailed commentary makes it more dangerous to a gullible reader than a quality center-left paper such as TNCT.'
